Not a great opponent but makes sense coming off him retiring Hatton, could sell well to the casual fan playing off that angle and maybe buy Khan some support.

He needs tricky or difficult fights, where he has to rely on his new found abilities to win, rather than absolute mismatches were he can afford to revert back to his old flaws and still win by a landslide.

It looks like Alvarado has been signed to fight Rios again, but he'd have been a good opponent. Ajose is another who would pose a good test but not be a major threat. Allakhverdiev looked alright against Guzman, so maybe him? Josesito at 147lbs would be fine. Mike Jones, perhaps?

There are plenty of guys out there who are in between a 'walkover' and a fight you'd expect Khan to lose. Not only would it be better for the fans if that was the opponent, Khan would learn more from being in the ring with someone who asks him a few questions.
I agree.....however, I think if this fight is at 147 then it's a good fight for Khan. First off it will allow him to test the waters at 147, potentially lines up a showdown with Kell Brook for a world title, and then the bigger fights after that if he gets through...i think it depends on what Khan's plans are....he can even wait for Danny to come to 147 to be honest...

This fight doesn't happen at 147, Khan has no intention of moving up in weight and Hunter has said over and over that if he can make 140 comfortably then that is where he will be fighting. Perhaps it might happen at 140 but I don't think Senchenko can make that and even if he could it would be an even more pointless victory if he has to boil down.

There was a suggestion of a Maidana rematch a few days back but that makes even less sense, the last thing Khan needs is to face a puncher, anyone with any type of power and a reasonable chin will simply try and walk him down and land a big hook. He should be fighting Malinaggi type opponents with plenty of guile and skill but not much power, then he can learn to box and not have to worry too much about walking on to a big shot.

I don't know why Khan is keen on moving to 147, the guys are bigger and hit much harder. Khan seems to have no problem making weight. Peterson and Garcia weighed much more than him on fight night and they have no issues with weight.

Besides, Khan is not tall as some think, only 5′ 8″ and probably walks not too far from his fighting weight.

Lets see what happens..

Problem is if he really wants to rematch Garcia in Dec at 140 then going up to 147 and liking that weight then going back to 140 to face a fighter like Garcia could make things a bit harder.

The only plus from this fight for Khan is home fight and decent pay, and another camp for Hunter to improve him.

I think his long reach gives that illusion

after the fight the amount of shit Khan's gonna be talkin about he beat a legit welterweight that beat Hatton and that
its gonna be painful to listen to until he fights someone good again

I'm aware of his CV. But he is a big welter with a decent dig. Khan is possibly moving up and we're not sure about how his speed/resistance/IQ will be.

Lets be honest its a good fight for his debut at welterweight. I think he was talking about Ortiz or Lopez which was risky bigger hitters to be honest and Senchenko is a smart move especially with a bloated reputation after the Hatton Fight.

I thought they'd lined up Senchenko as a Pacquiao comeback fight?

Negative.

Malignaggi would've stopped Hatton with a body shot on that night.

Hell, Dmitry Salita would've.
